There's a great new astrobiology blog, run by newspaper editor Rob Bignell, at http://alienlifeblog.blogspot.com/. It includes roundups of the latest news from the various scientific fields that form astrobiology and information about SETI.

Perhaps someone should add Dennis Kucinich's quote regarding his sighting of a UFO, including his sass regarding Bush's approval rating. This is extrememly important, especially with the 08 presidental campaign.

The Reagan quote is misleading; the quote is valid, but it is snipped out of context. Just after the portion cited: "And yet, I ask you, is not an alien threat already among us ? What could be more alien to universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat of war?" -- that's not quite the same thing as saying there is an alien threat; he was using aliens as an allegory for international conflict. see http://www.reagan.utexas.edu/archives/speeches/1987/092187b.htm --Teledyn 04:29, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
